These memoirs are an eloquent account of Prince Norodom Sihanouk’s fight for Cambodian independence – first against France and then, for over twenty years, against the United States.
Sihanouk shows that Cambodia’s freedom from the French was only the beginning of an even more arduous struggle. Exposing American efforts to sabotage his neutralist policies, he describes the ever-present CIA involvement with his domestic opponents, the corrupting influence of dollar aid, the assassination attempts against him, and the coup that finally toppled his government in March 1970. His book is thus a startling report on the tactics used by the world’s strongest power to force smaller nations away from their chosen policies.
